I saw this 1977 Viper Green Metallic Callaway Turbo Scirocco on eBay in the early 2000's. It was located in Belmont. It did not have a windshield. I think the seller was seeking $5K. I let it pass. Months passed and I then saw it in the Want Advertiser for $3K after a two sentence ad, located in Newton. I called and the new owner made me an offer I could not refuse. I drove it home two hours later. He seller threw in a crack free Mk1 Scirocco dashboard too. 

I took it to the Kart Track in CT for a Volkswagen event and to at least one event hosted by Yarrow Thorne and Yarrowsport in Rhode Island. The stage I only boosted up to 6lbs in the 4 speed transmission. It should be noted, this is the third Callaway Turbo car that I have had that passed through the hands of Andy King and R+A Applied Arts, Lyndhurst New Jersey. 

The car was passed onto friend Bill W., minus the Callaway Turbo kit and ATS Cup Wheels. We installed the kit into my 83 Rabbit GTI. Bill installed his own Callaway Turbo kit with Intercooler and extra fueling.
